SEATTLE, Wash. (PRWEB) August 20, 2014
Bonanza.com, the online marketplace that sells “everything but the ordinary,” has announced a new affiliate program to bring additional shoppers to their 10 million product listings.
The program enlists bloggers, review sites and other web-based businesses to drive traffic to items for sale on Bonanza, in exchange for sales commissions that average 70% higher than similar programs offered by competitors eBay and Amazon.
“Bonanza is working hard to become a household name, and part of that is finding new ways to grow a broader customer base,” said William Harding, Bonanza’s CEO and founder. "Affiliate programs have been a successful way to enlist bloggers and other webmasters to refer traffic to products their readers love. To attract the best partners, we built our affiliate program to be 'too good not to try' with higher commissions, better terms, and a longer referral window.”
According to the Bonanza Affiliates website (http://affiliates.bonanza.com/), Bonanza offers a minimum commission of 8%, compared to 1% offered by Amazon and 4% offered by eBay. Bonanza's maximum commission of 15% is nearly double the 8% offered by competitor eBay.
Harding also says that the Bonanza Affiliates “cookie window” - the amount of time that a referred shopper has to make a purchase for the referring site to get a commission - is twice as long as the window offered by eBay and Amazon. “We want our partners to get credit where it’s due. A 48-hour window means that our affiliates have more time to earn a commission in case a referred shopper doesn’t necessarily buy right away.”
Bonanza already promotes their merchants’ products by listing them on search engines like Google and Bing, as well as comparison shopping engines such as Pricegrabber.com and Nextag.com. The new affiliate program offers an additional way for shoppers to discover Bonanza products as they surf their favorite blogs, review sites, news outlets or other web sites that choose to promote Bonanza listings in exchange for a commission on referred sales.
